, who dedicated their lives to serving the others. i mother was a special-education teacher. [cheers] yeah, teachers. my dad worked on the army base. my parents were crystal clear about what they wanted for us and that was an education. so a lot of what we did to give back was in the educational arena. i love that president obama house the same values. -- has the same values. he knows that, for our nation, and education cannot be a luxury. it will strengthen the middle- class and strengthen the work force that will keep us innovative. if you're thinking about how you can search or how you can follow the president's example to honor this national day of service, start with this. make a difference in one child's life. mentor a student. donate a book to a library, donate supplies to a school. i am here because i have someone looking out for me. i'm telling you how important my education was. someone was pushing me to succeed. but i want to make sure the next generation has that as well. so last year, when i launched the eva longoria foundation, i focused on helping advance latinas in ed
read your articles every day for the past year or two. you have educated me. you have enhanced my knowledge of a lot of things that i have heard that comes out of the republicans or conservative talk-show hosts by criticize obama. after reading your article, i found out what i hear on a rush limbaugh and the michael savage show was absolutely a lie. host: you give us an example? caller: a whole solyndra tuition. i found out the facts by reading your article in our local paper. the whole solyndra thing started with the bush administration. guest: thanks for the kind words. i am glad that you are reading them in your local paper one thing we are trying to do, as much as we can, is get our work out in different ways. we have partnerships with television stations. have partnerships with newspapers. the one you are read for into in atlanta uses the truth-o-meter on state and local officials. i am glad to hear you are reading our work and their work and i am happy our word is getting out host:politifact looked at issues -- looks at issues like energy. what to do find overall? guest: a l
spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of the economy that has been true for a generation. that is not a recipe for growth. we have to do more to stabilize the finances over the medium and long-term, and also spur more growth in the short term. i have said i am hoping to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said we need more revenue for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a

. we think that is very important at the brady center. we're involved in public education campaigns to educate people about the risks of guns and educate clinicians' about what they should know and to educate the public about what they can do to prevent gun crimes before they happen. there are a lot of sensible proposals that we can do to get at all aspects of this complex problem. host: this tweet from bill badey. is there a definition for that? guest: i think he means a gun show sell. that is not going to be relevant for the current debate. we have gone past that. people talked about closing the gun show loophole. the problem with that is that it is still left open internet sales and sales in the parking lot of those shows. we have gone past that. it will not be of little significance if we can require background checks on all gun sales. it will close the classified ad loopholes and all gun sales under one place. it is similar if we sold controlled substances where you would say the law requires you to get a prescription from a doctor and go to a pharmacy to buy drugs except when

's a hard story to cover. the president has to be an educate on climate issue. by giving it the form, not a paragraph, he's gone a long way to start the second term discussion on climate we need. >> we can't judge how historians are going to see this. i suspect on many issues, they'll see it as forward thinking. that doesn't take away from the fact it probably will be seen as the next couple years as a partisan speech. i think they best test how partisan the speech is, is not what republicans say on it, what democrats running for re-election on the senate two years from now say on the speech and what democrats say in swing districts about the speech. i don't know you're going to get a lot of these democrats running in conservative states where the president got below 45%, and there are quite a few, in 2014, are going to be talking about gay rights, climate change and gun control. rober robert. >> look. every district is unique and different, as you well know and as we know, as we looking through the map. i think the speech, talking, as doug said about seneca falls and stonewall and s

to worry about half measures. the second thing is you have a got a president who is been educated, some say through a hard way through an intransijent congress one who is figuring out how to use the leaver levers of power. one thing that struck me when looking at the people at the mall and going back and forth living to the inaugural address was how diverse it was and how enthusiastic it was. and people were estimated 600,000 to 800,000. that's a lot of people. that's a lot of power to put behind tim. he used it on the debt ceiling i expect to see him use it going forward. >> cenk: it is about the start and they are right about executive orders especially on climate change. that's exactly what we're going to talk about in the next segment. we'll talk about the new president obama taking executive action. we'll discuss that when we return. >> obama: some may still deny the overwhelming science but no one can avoid the raging fires, crippling drought and more powerful storms. they don't know it yet but they're gonna fall in love get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ]
administration. making the transportation department work with the education department, work with the e.p.a., sustainable communicates, promised neighborhoods. to invest in brain power and education, and also lift up neighborhoods at the same time. and to his credit, he's been more collabrative with mayors, i think than we've seen in a long time. so i have a lot of hope for the second term. >> mayor castro of san antonio, texas, and brother joaquin castro in congress, very kind of you to spend a moment with us. >> great to be here. >> the president will be leaving the capitol shortly. he'll go out the east front where members of the u.s. military have been assembled so that we can symbolically review the troops. and we have leon panetta joining us now from inside the capitol. can you hear us, second panetta? >> i can, good to talk to you. >> nice to talk to you, mr. secretary. >> i don't three weeks ago any americans would have thought that north africa would be at the top of the security concerns. we've heard three americans were killed in that hostage situation in algeria and seven am
issues to disparity in education and health care, would also be put on the agenda, and those would also be addressed. certainly a lot of that has not happened, and there is certainly a disappointment across large sectors of the black community. but it is also realistic also a sense of the constraint that the president has had. and it is not just about the president. it is also bought congress, about state houses, and about governors. there is a broader political strategy that has to enfold to achieve some of the things that people hoped would happen when president obama was elected. host: barbara, anything to add to that? guest: it is often hard to maintain the kind of levels of excitement from the first inaugural to the second, and that applies to any president, particularly this one because the expectations were so high. i compared it to a second marriage. hard to rekindle that sparked sometimes. perhaps it is the more like renewing the vows. the american people ought to fall in love again with the president. they want to have that hope and expectation. there are lots of people here.
educational protections and services including transportation to stay in the same school. public schools in new york, new jersey, connecticut are working tirelessly to support uninterrupted education of displaced children through the program. yet these schools face significant unexpected costs associated with the increased number of homeless students. congress has appropriated supplemental funds to help defer the costs associated with these increase -- these increases from past disasters. mr. chairman, if i might, give than the bill before us today does not contain direct funding for the program, is it your understanding that the intentions of the department of health and human services and the department of education work with the states of new york, new jersey, connecticut to assist the school districts affected by superstorm sandy, to access funds under the social services block grant to support the education of students displaced by the storm, including the transportation, counseling and supplies? i yield to the gentleman. mr. rogers: i thank the gentleman for yielding. yes. that is
. this is renowned author, educator and political activist angela davis who spoke last night, founder of the group critical resistance, a grassroots effort to in the prison industrial complex. davis voiced support for president obama, the said much work needs to be done. >> let me say this time around we cannot subordinate our aspirations and our hopes to presidential the agendas. our passionate support for president barack obama and it is wonderful that we can say for the second time, president barack obama, and we support him and are passionate about that support. but that support should also be expressed in our determination to raise issues that have largely been ignored or not appropriately addressed by the administration. and let me say that we are aware that we should be celebrating, critically celebrating the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. [applause] there should be massive celebrations this year. what has happened other than the film "lincoln"? and of course with 2.5 million people behind bars today, the prison system, the immigrant detention system are terrible remain
good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st century america. his focus has to be on the economy. on the need to reduce unemployment. and frankly, i hope he can, through his own example, restore a sense of civility in the country. >> every president learns a lot. is scarred by the office. also made more wise by the office. what is the one thing you hope president obama has learned over the last four years? >> i hope he's learned that you know, no one part of the government, really, gets it all done. and so, he's got to do a better job of reaching out to members of congress, across both -- across the aisle, to the republicans. and the republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. why aren't republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and these other things? they're silent. they need to speak out. this is the kind of intolerance i've been talking about, where these idiot presentations continue to be made. and you don't see th
but to educate you so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. we had that sweet combination of good earnings from companies like general electric, morgan stanley, schlumberger coupled with benign squibbs out of washington that maybe there won't be a big fight, partisanship, maybe there'll be a deal. and that combo produced nice, quiet, bullish action. the dow rallying 54 points, s&p gaining .34%, though the nasdaq declined .04% because of a disappointment from intel and earnings jitters from google and apple. yet, despite that relatively rosy action, the earnings season was a bust or the earnings are okay but the sales are weak. people over the place are chastising me for regarding the numbers we've seen so far in the last couple of weeks as positive. like i'm whistling past the graveyard. see no evil earnings. first, earnings season has barely begun. it's about eight minutes have gone by in the first quarter. these nay sayers are acting as if they're watching some football game where the bears/patriots are three touchdowns ahead of the bullish ravens at the two-minute warning. that's way too early to judg
